1st Redbourn Brownies

1st Redbourn Brownies is now a thriving unit of 18 girls aged from 7 to 10 years old.

We have two leaders Snowy and Tawny Owl and are fortunate to also have two Duke of Edinburgh Award volunteers.

Have a look at our Facebook page to see what fun things we have been up to more recently!


During the year, apart from our fun weekly meetings and all the badge's we achieve, we also join in lot's of regular outside activities such as

Pantomime trip

District Thinking day

In 2012 we celebrated the Queens Golden Jubilee, in 2013 we put on a performance of "Eddie Saves the World" and our own version of "Gangnam Style" in Redbourn Village Hall and in 2014 we joined in a Treasure trail event
